Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Supporting the Troops?

So, apparently, these 20,000 "new" troops (actually guys on their umpteenth rotation) will be going into battle, WITHOUT PROPERLY ARMORED HUMVEES. And this is THREE YEARS after the need for properly armored Humvees became clear. By this time in World War 2, we were literally burying troops under equipment and yet today we STILL have US Marines digging in trash dumps for "hillbilly armor" parts? If sheer, visceral, cosmic incompetence were an impeachable offense, this President would be tarred, feathered and ridden out of town on a rail.
